    Hi 👋, A human child is found by a feral dog 🐕 when he is an infant 👶🏻. Rafoo, the Rhodesian Ridgeback who finds him, brings him back to his pack. He is adopted and raised by them. Kallie, an English Shepherd, is his adoptive mother, while Rafoo is his guardian. Arkan, an Alaskan Malamute, is the alpha. Dylan the Great Dane is a hippie dog who is convinced through reading the stars that they will one day be at peace with the humans that persecute them. Karan, the child, befriends a seductive, misunderstood Dobermann named Kara who has been cast out by her pack for being partially blind and partially deaf. A human hunter and his mates hunt the dogs. The hunter attempts to shoot the dogs, leading to chase scenes through the forest 🌳, along with a fire 🔥 and Rafoo getting shot in the leg/paw. Eventually, Karan joins the hunter at the camp and the hunter is nice to him. It is revealed that the hunter only hunts the dogs 🐕 out of fear of them. Will Karan succeed in bringing peace ☮️ to the dogs 🐕 and the humans? Constructive criticism allowed, abuse not allowed. Thank you 😊 to the moon 🌒 (an extra special, good moon) and back. Have the best day and night ever!

    Best answer: They [the Publishers] thought that an American child would not want to read a book with the word "philosopher" in the title.
    After discussion, the American edition was published in September 1998 under the title Rowling suggested, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."

    Philosophy, is a bunch of old men sitting under a tree drinking Beer or Wine, talking about worthless subjects, to an American educated child.
    It is a rare child, let alone an Adult, who knows the Myth.
    One must talk Down to Americans. They are not as educated.

    Southern Baptists and some other Christians would just as soon BAN the series altogether, since it goes against their Christian Bible Teachings.

  • Who here likes Harry Potter? If so how many of the books have you read? :)?

    Best answer: I've read them all several times. I read the first when I was in my 40s, enjoyed it, and just kept going. I know many people think they're fit only for children and backward teens, but this highly-educated, widely-read 70-year-old Scotswoman enjoys them enormously.

    I know many people think they're fit only for children and backward teens, but this highly-educated, widely-read 70-year-old Scotswoman enjoys them enormously.
    Of course they're not great literature, not even the best children's literature, but they have strong characters, a colourful and imaginative setting, the right 'feel' for good v evil, and that indefinable 'page turner' quality.

    I've just completed my annual re-read, with as much pleasure as usual.

    Best answer: First of all, you chose a very interesting topic as it revolves around an image that is drown in our minds since we were kids. We were taught that Pirates are people without hearts, who don't have the right to life, love, or even have a proper way to die. I'll give you some tips to start your fantasy story:
    1- Start showing pirates as people with hearts, who may have ones among them with kind hearts and truly passionate dreams. You can work on the idea of love between a pirate and a girl whom he has to choose between and his cruel life, show his inner struggle, show how miserable his life was before finding his soulmate. Choose your antagonist & protagonist carefully because your story will totally depend on how well you draw their roles.
    Wish you all the best.

  • A flock of sheep?

    Best answer: If lambs are critical to the telling of the story, you should find a way to include them, as sheep only have lambs with them during lambing season. You can say 'a flock of sheep and their lambs' or you can expand it by saying something like a 'flock of sheep, accompanied by their new born lambs'.

    Best answer: I don't think anyone but your descendants and any bratty little siblings would be interested in reading your diary. Not that your diary is boring. I don't know what you've been through. It might be interesting, but most diaries are interesting only to the writer of the diary. Mine are interesting only to me. In fifty to a hundred years, it could end up in an archives for its "local history" of mid-twentieth century teenage mores in a locality in Southern Ontario or mentions of things like "8-tracks", "transistor radios", "VHS tapes" and "rotary dial telephones".

    But keep your diaries and notebooks. You never know what inspiration you may find when re-reading them. After all, Anne Frank knew she was living in interesting times. How many people went into hiding in a "secret annex"? Plus, their lives were in danger. She did not know how things would turn out for them. The idea that they might be killed; or the Allies might liberate them; or that they might have become slaves or worse if the Nazis remained in power, the whole uncertainty of their future,and how to get through it, must have weighty - as well as the need to keep silent and what to do about Margot and their roommates annoying her, and Peter in particular. Anne was "going through the change to becoming a woman", as my mother would say. Most of our lives are not in danger.

    So, write your personal story in your diary; but I suggest you keep it private unless you have gone through a crisis. Cancer. War. The death of your mother or child. Something your readers can relate to or want to know about. You can take an impression you wrote and made it a part of your character's experience - perhaps the first time you flew in a plane or skydiving or your current crush or a description of that great or terrible movie you saw. (I still remember how I felt when I first read "Gone With the Wind" at 15. That book represented a milestone year in my life. My first year in a new school. My first "adult" crush. Several challenges undergone. The death of a classmate's mother.) You are not transcribing your diary for publication, but "reliving" an experience you read in your diary, so you can describe the feelings your main character feels: joy, thrill of "growing up" and being "in a relationship", helplessness for a schoolfriend's loss, the horror of watching her spin downhill with depression, grief and all the work of becoming orphaned and a homemaker for her father and younger brother.

    Best answer: Most of them.
